Medical malpractice is a form of negligence. Healthcare providers are professionals, and they have a duty to provide a reasonable level of care to their patients. When the conduct of a healthcare professional falls below this standard of care, it is considered negligent.
In Utah, a legal claim for malpractice will arise if a doctor or other medical professional is negligent, and if that negligence causes the patient to suffer an injury. The law cannot undo a personal injury caused by medical negligence. Instead, a malpractice lawyer can help you recover an amount of money to compensate you for the pain and suffering caused by the injury, as well as additional money to help pay for past and future medical expenses and to compensate for lost wages.
There are many ways in which medical malpractice can occur. Delays in diagnosis, birth injuries (cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia, etc.), surgical error, nursing mistakes, and prescription drug overdoses are some of the more common cases. The results can be severe, including lost wages, inability to work, pain, suffering, and even death.
